Ahead of the marriage referendum, Riyadh Khalaf has produced a moving video which depicts what a ‘Yes’ vote will mean for him and other Irish LGBT citizens.

“In this video I tell my story and the battle of adolescence as I discovered who I was. I tried to change, to hide my sexuality from the world and to ‘cure’ myself of something that should never be seen as a sickness,” Riyadh writes.

The content producer and radio reporter for Spin 103.8 is an avid social media user and frequently creates personal videos which go viral across the world.
